India's scientific talent pool much smaller than China's

Indians and many of India's propagandas often say that India is a scientific and techological power. But this claim can hardly be tested by real numbers. Of the 14 countries spends on research and development, India is the only country who spent single digit of US dollars per capita on R&D.

India has just 110 scientists per one million population and spends a mere $3.53 per capita on research and development in science and technology.

According to information volunteered by Minister of State for Science and Technology Kapil Sibal, India stands last in a list of 14 countries in spending on research and development in science. China, which stands one notch higher, spends $12.15 per capita and has 633 scientists per million - about six times as many as India's.
